BUSINESS DESCRIPTION
Well established corporate and specialist clothing suppliers

Ref.AB040
Location South East
Asking Price £ 280,000

Having spent many years working for a number of major retailers of ‘classic clothing’ the principal director and owner of this business was one of the first to really impress upon business managers the importance of the appearance of employees in portraying a professional corporate image, helping to establish this company as a specialist in the design and production of Corporate and associated clothing. In fact you would be hard pressed to fly away on holiday, visit a theatre, museum or new property development without coming across a company representative with clothing designed by this business.

From the beginning, very personal, attentive service has been the cornerstone of this business. The staff are responsive, professional and friendly, working very closely with clients to ensure design briefs are expertly interpreted resulting in a uniform that not only reflects a business’s brand values and differentiates it from its competitors but it is also welcomed by staff. The service doesn’t just include design and production of the finished item but provides as required full logistical support including stockholding, warehousing and distribution services.

This business offers a choice of original bespoke design using custom made fabrics or high quality ‘selected from-stock’ ranges. Approximately 70% of clients have their corporate clothing specifically designed for them with the remainder opting to buy from stock lines of tailored or promotional clothing.

With an undoubted flair for design and a reputation for excellent quality, bespoke designs are made available at very competitive prices for relatively low volumes. This together with a policy to pay all suppliers promptly has allowed this business to work with the best manufacturing partners and consequently it has a client list of over 20 companies with which it has longstanding, on-going relationships.
